EHR Certification measures for the Quality Payment Program
Quality Payment Program is a platform for eligible clinicians to provide improved care to the patients and for CMS to ensure that providers use IT in meaningful ways. Many programs were introduced to incentivize/ penalize providers, but it became a burden to understand what’s relevant, identify the program requirements and report to different programs. QPP ties all these disparate programs together to yield a single composite score. It is imperative that EHRs develop capabilities to ensure their providers are able to report to all the criteria’s under QPP -> MIPS avenue – for ACI, Quality and IA activities.
